Summary

Fifteen-year-old Mina Clark lives in a future Manhattan that is ruled by extremists. 

Girls aren’t allowed to get an education, they need permission to speak to boys, and all marriages are negotiated by contract. But Mina’s grandmother has secretly been teaching her to read, leading Mina down a path of rebellion, romance, and danger that not only threatens to destroy her family’s reputation, it could get Mina killed.

Pick this up

Wow! This was the best dystopian I’ve listened to in a while! The world is fantastic, and I was honestly so impressed with the creativity and unique outlook the author took here. You could see the amount of time and thoughtfulness put into writing this, and I definitely feel that this series is going to become big. I loved the main female lead, and her growth and maturity throughout. I also thought the pacing was excellent and the story never lulled. Looking forward to book two!

Exceptional!

I’ve had this book for a while. I kept putting it off because I thought it would be an emotional rollercoaster like the handmaiden tale. It wasn’t like that. It did incite a ton of emotions including anger but it was amazing. This is one of the best books I’ve read so far this year.
Mina is a beautifully written well rounded character. She is smart and fierce. You want to take her in your arms and tell her everything will be ok but she would know you were just trying to make her feel better. Everything is not ok.
I can’t wait to see where this story goes. I know these characters will stay and live in my brain for a very long time.
Narration by Monica Wolfe the as exceptional.
